Update Regarding VA and DOD Data

HealtheConnections has been formally notified that the eHealth Exchange has decided to terminate our agreement – along with the agreements of the two other New York State accredited health information exchanges (HIEs) connected to them as a conduit for data sharing between Veterans Administration, Department of Defense and other clinical care participants across the country. At issue is our compliance with New York State law regarding patient consent. Their termination action thereby prevents the sharing of clinical data from the Veterans Administration and The Department of Defense to HealtheConnections’ participants.

We, along with the other two impacted HIEs in New York State and the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), have filed a complaint with the Federal Office of the National Coordinator and are seeking immediate reinstatement to eHealth Exchange.

We will keep you informed of our progress. If you have questions, please contact your account manager or our support team.
